What Mindful Return course alumnae want to tell employers about the course:

“This course is the best investment you can make to ensure a smooth return to work for a woman who has been on maternity leave.”

“Maternity leave is an overwhelming process for both employees and employers … ultimately the better you can help your employee plan and prepare for leave, the easier the transition will be and the more thought that can go into planning for her absence and return as a healthy worker.”

“This will make your employees more likely to return to work after leave!”

“This course enabled me to think about developing a solid plan for returning to work – what details I needed to think about at home, how I needed to structure my work, and what I needed to ‘let go of’ to ensure that my firm gets its best from me. Returning to work after leave is stressful, but Mindful Return gave me ideas, strategies, and a plan for returning to work as an even better employee.”

“This course gave me the power to come back to work ready to go. I didn’t cry walking into work this time. I didn’t have to make phone calls to people while in my office to tell me that I could do this. This course helped me get ready to come back to work – ready for the challenges and excited about what I had to offer.”

“The course is extremely useful and provides a good forum for support, tips, ideas, and suggestions on making the return to work as seamless and fruitful as possible.”

“I told my HR partner that I felt WAY more prepared to re-enter because of what I was learning and that I thought it was our company’s responsibility to offer every educational opportunity to help returning mamas succeed at re-entry.”

“The course promotes a smooth, well-planned transition back to work, and increases retention of valued employees.”
